So. Tonight's the big night. School reunion - thirty years since Year 10. Hoo boy. I didn't get to do all those tummy crunches I planned in order to slim down. I was actually a somewhat hot-bodied teenager. I guess I'm passable as a middle-aged woman. Tonight the big questions will be answered: Who got fat? Who went bald? Who had a sex change? Now, what I'm fantasing about is that my old classmates will rock up with copies of my novels for me to autograph. Pie-in-the-sky pipe…Continue

Cody Toye has a way with fantasy/paranormal/ sci-fi/horror. He has done it with his series “Intangibles” and he brings those skills to bear here in “Clone Zone”. The digital short story is quick, furious, and rampaging. This is the 24th installment in The Author’s Lab/Collaborations series and it is a barnburner. Surprisingly the cast of characters is small yet many, basically because they all look like the same person. This story is under consideration to become its own…Continue

Lessons learned in classrooms or even through work experience are extremely important. That said, those learned outside the classroom or boardroom — the real-world essentials — are critical to success as well. In his new book, The 4 Essentials: A Path to Success and Happiness, successful entrepreneur Cliff Michaels brings to life what he calls a Real-World MBA, a Master’s in Basic Abilities.
In The 4…Continue

I grew up among bombed buildings and hearing stories from my parents about the difficultes of air raids, so it was little wonder I’d always wanted to write a novel with World War II as its theme. When I found out about the shameful and extraordinarily cruel internment of Italian men in 1940, I knew I had an amazing event around which to build a story. Internment of Italians happened in Britain, where I set the novel, but it also happened in the United States — California recently apologized…Continue

I am noticing a trend here, each of Layton Green’s titles have two words in them. First there was “The Summoner” and now “The Egyptian”. Personally I don’t really care; I just enjoy the main character in both, the Dominic Grey, wait that was three words. Okay enough joking around. Layton Green’s novels are infused with common things, science, extremes, and action. A nice formula. There seems to be no middle ground.. What his formula…Continue

1) Let it Bleed, I feel, can be read on two levels. Am I…Continue

Bethany House is the publisher of this novel and they do an excellent job of producing a rich, multi-layered story. I have not had the pleasure of reading a Davis Bunn novel before, but very quickly I have become a fan of his writing. “Lion of Babylon” is a look at Iraq and Iran through the eyes and hearts of a variety of characters painting a picture that is surreal, consuming and confusing. The viewpoints hop around from character to character and give all sides of the dilemmas that plague…Continue

Just because I read plenty of digital short stories , novellas and full length novels that have plenty of horror, thriller , suspense, death and mayhem undertones does not mean that I can’t take a back seat from that and enjoy a nice wholesome read on the Amish folks I so do enjoy. Okay, I like their cooking, but so many other people.
Karen Anna Vogel’s writing for me is unique and has a viewpoint and narrative that I have come to quickly enjoy. Her take on the “Plain” people is…Continue

“Find Her” marks the birth of a new digital short story new series and a new action character I really enjoy. Mike Dalmas is the character that Jochem Vandersteen has created and the universe in which he places him is interesting and dynamic. The setting is something like middle class suburbia, yet not, but the action and the hero seemed all too real and cut from today’s headlines.
Mike Dalmas is an ex-Special forces type but with a twist; the guy actually has a wife and kids and has…Continue
